COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison Rue is an unfiltered, bottle conditioned, Belgian/French-style farmhouse ale. This is a beer of subtlety and complexity, with malted rye, spicy, fruity yeast notes, biscuit-like malt backbone and a slight citrus hop character. With age, this beer will dry out and will become more complex with rustic notes of leather and earth from the contribution of a wild yeast strain. Being a saison, Saison Rue is ambiguous unto itself as it is a different beer when fresh and when aged.

iRate. Bottle from my friend Jeanine. Pours a hazy amber color with an aggressive off-white head. Smells and tastes of brown sugar, Belgian yeast, rye bread, slight caramel, white chocolate, lemon rind, and carrots. Nice.

Tap at brewery. Cloudy orange with white head. Some sour nose and citrus. A bit metallic. Citrus and tart. Decent body. Pretty good but I expected more.

Pale golden appearance with a thick white head. Aroma is slight banana with some hay. Flavor is light and effervescent with some light banana and clove. Nice fruity yeast in the finish. Quite nice take on a saison, excellent in the summer.

Not sure how old this bottle is. Pours deep golden and almost approaching amber in a deep glass. Head is medium bubbles and prominent and dissipates quickly to some spotty lumps and a film. Nose is sweet caramels and dominate saison nose of strong spices and complex and intense fruits. Some mustyness and evident toasted like grains. Flavor is sweet malts, spices, some but subdued brett funk and various fruity hops. I’m really torn between thinking this one is sweet and thinking it finishes dry. Probably more sweet but crisp. Pretty good and interesting but I would have liked to see more dryness and flavor to have come from the brett. Was there crystal malts in this one?

750 ml Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar: Hazy pale peach color with a medium, fading egg shell white head. Aroma is spice, fruit and a hint of sour brett. Flavor is fruity (ripe apricot, some citrus and pear) with a peppery bite, lightly tart with a rather dry grapefruit finish. Medium body is smooth with lively carbonation.

Bomber. Pours a golden copper color with a creamy white head. Aromas of apple, spice, rye, and some yeast. Flavor is caramel, fruit, spice, and light rye. Mediumed bodied, light dry finish. There is just a hint of alcohol here too.

accidentally aged this for over 1.5 years. still a damn good beer; I don’t care for the Brett and didn’t really taste any - due to aging??. hazy gold color. aroma of spring and summer - citrus, flower, yeast, and slightest of funk. nice palate for style. taste is what gets this to a 4 - great balance of many many things going on here - citrus, Belgian yeast, funk, slightest of tartness, carbonation, yeast. love this!! thx to whomever/however I got this!

Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Smells funky with hints of stone fruits. Taste is funk, hay, white fruits and stone fruits. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and lively mouth-carbonation, Bruery Saison Rue finishes with a lingering subtle funk.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JUL 12, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 750ml bottle brought by theisti. Served in a Chimy chalice. Aroma is spicy rye, light fruit (apple), spice (black pepper), light yeast and vanilla. The brett funkiness is pretty reserved, so much so that you might not pick it out of the aroma if you were not told. Taste is lightly kilned malt, light funk, apple/pear, peppery spice, yeast and vanilla. I gave the beer a swirl and got a huge amount of spearmint.
